The Independence Day fireworks show in downtown Texarkana has been cancelled again this year.
Because of proximity to the animal shelter, no one has applied for a permit to hold a fireworks show in the downtown area. However, several communities in the area are holding fireworks shows throughout the coming weekend.
Atlanta, Texas, is holding their show at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday behind the Atlanta Fire Department.
Hope will also have a fireworks show on Saturday beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Hope Municipal Airport.
Redwater, Texas, will have a show on Sunday conducted by the First Baptist Church from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the church.

Ashdown will hold their Fourth of July event at 4:00 p.m. on Monday at the Ashdown Junior High School.
